“A gem of a hotel, don't overlook this conveniently located hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We stayed here on Saturday Dec. 22 and had a wonderful experience. From the convenient FREE valet parking to the front desk and wonderful service for breakfast - a shout out to Angela our server who made us feel so welcome and special. And to David the food and beverage asst. director who we exchanged trip advice with, thanks! Don't overlook this hotel the next time you stay in Milwaukee.

Thank you for taking the time to write of your experience at the Doubletree by Hilton Milwaukee Downtown. In reading your review I would believe you to be the purchaser of a Living Social Certificate. Thank you for the wonderful review but I do need to correct one statement and that being Valet parking is not free. The is a fee but because you had purchased a certificate it was included in your stay. The vouchers were a great little value and we appreciate that you chose to spend time with us. Please come back and visit in the future. Sincerely, Kathryn

Very happy with our stay at The Double Tree. Check in was quick and efficient and we were quickly on our way to an upgraded room on the 10th floor. The hotel is older than I had expected and is in need of some cosmetic updates - however, the rooms were very clean and the entire property very well kept. There are flat screens in the rooms and there was granite in the bathroom but the hotel carpet looked old and so did the curtains in the room. We had Bucks tickets and it was a quick 4 or so block walk to the stadium and even on a very cold night - it was easy. When we returned the front desk clerk remembered that we went to the game - which was very nice. All n' all a great stay and we will return when in the area.

I stayed there for a couple of months 2011/2012. It is an excellent package for business. it is not really luxurious , but all you need. The rooms were nice..could need some improvements ( like bathroom fixtures etc.. ) - but overall good. Breakfast is good and "real" ( atmosphere about average , however , for restaurant and bar ) . The have a full bar and restaurant on site and food is elevated sports bar food. They have a daily special which is pretty healthy actually. Staff is super nice - valet parking is quick. One of our team had an emergency at the place...and they took care of her and her stuff..can highly recommend the place.

This was our third time staying at this hotel. Once again, another fantastic visit.
The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The desk staff was very friendly.
We got a great deal on the room and breakfast. The breakfast buffet was very good. We had dinner at Mimma's Cafe. It was wonderful!

I arrived here to visit a friend who was coming in town. Upon my arrival I was greeted and bags were taken immediately to the room. I then was greeted again by customer service. The lobby was huge and decorated with many antiques. I was escorted to my room on the 26th foor. Very peaceful. Rooms were spacious, linen smelled fresh, and beds were comfortable and cozy. I would definately return on my trip back to Milwaukee

Room Tip: The higher floors the best (20 and up).

It is wonderful that you have taken the time to write a review of the property that you stayed at however, I do believe that your review is of the Hilton which is right across the street from us the Doubletree by Hilton. Good to know that the Hilton was good to you. If you ever have the opportunity we would love to have you visit us. Sincerely, Kathryn

We just returned from a quick weekend stay at this hotel. The hotel itself is beautiful, rooms are spacious enough, clean, and tastefully decorated. We've traveled enough to know that this hotel had something special going on - the entire staff was exceptional. Check in was speedy, pleasant, and efficient. The Front Desk Staff is knowledgeable and eager to help you find your way around the city, pulling out maps and giving suggestions. Breakfast and drinks in the attached Avenue Restaurant and Bar were also enjoyable. The buffet breakfast was much nicer (and tastier) than the typical continental breakfast offered in some hotels. Again, the staff took it to another level. David (the assistant director of food and beverage) seated us every morning making sure we had everything we needed. Our waitstaff, Curtis and Bryan took special care always engaging in pleasant conversation and making us laugh. They actually seemed like they liked their job and made you feel more like a family member coming back home. Valet parking was efficient and the attendants always pleasant. Even the housekeeping staff had smiles and inquiries about your day. We will certainly be back to this Double Tree the next time we visit Milwaukee and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone thinking of staying there.

Room Tip: We loved the view of the city from the top floor!

My wife and I had a quick getaway to Potowatami Casino and stayed overnight. Everything was top notch. They ran us over to the casino in the hotel shuttle. The room was clean and quiet. We had a drink in the bar, which was also very neat and breakfast at the grille the next morning. Even the valet was very helpful (without being prompted) with directions, etc. Highly recommended!!
